Bela Lugosi - rare 1955 interview

by unknown



Lugosi's last on-camera interview from 1955. This shows him leaving the California State hospital after a 90-day morphine detox program. Lugosi was the first celebrity to go public with a drug addiction problem. He did this shortly after filming Ed Wood's "Bride of the Monster". In the interview he mentions looking forward to working with Wood again on "The Ghoul Goes West". However, the film was never made and Lugosi died of a heart attack a year later.

Wood did shoot some random footage of Lugosi that wound up in his most notorious film, "Plan 9 from Outer Space".

Subject: "Bela Lugosi....
....he was the worst advertisement for drug rehab. He was a junkie for 20 years, he cleaned up and dropped dead"

Lenny Bruce

Yes, it's ironic that Lenny Bruce said that considering he didn't clean up and dropped dead more than 30 years younger than Lugosi
